SAN ANTONIO – Winston-Salem City Council Member Denise “D.D.” Adams was elected to the National League of Cities (NLC) board of directors by NLC’s membership at the 2019 City Summit in San Antonio. As a board member, Adams will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy, governance and membership activities. NLC is the largest and most representative organization for cities, their elected leaders and municipal staff, and advocates for city priorities in Washington, D.C. by building strong federal-local partnerships.

“The NLC’s leadership focuses on collecting data to better inform decisions by the board and by the NLC’s member cities,” Adams said. “I look forward to using my professonal experience as a quality engineer for Johnson Controls to contribute to this effort. I also look forward to using my seat on the board to address the hollowing out of federal programs that assist cities with such issues as food insecurity, affordable housing, economic development and equal opportunity.”

As a member of the board, Adams will meet in March, June and November to guide NLC’s strategic direction. Board members are selected by a 15-member nominating committee, and are confirmed by a vote from NLC’s membership at the organization’s annual business meeting. 

“Our board of directors helps guide the National League of Cities’ priorities and policies,” said NLC President Joe Buscaino, council member from Los Angeles. “It is made up of an amazing group of local leaders and I am excited to work with them to lead with urgency in addressing homelessness, building innovation-driven economies and strengthening local-federal partnerships.”

More than 4,000 mayors, council members and other delegates from all 50 states and the District of Columbia convened in San Antonio for City Summit. Local leaders are on the frontline of the nation’s most pressing challenges and pioneering innovative solutions that move our cities, towns, and villages forward.
